Meetings Largely Attended Last Sun day At Star Thratre Some Manifestations It takes the Spiritualistic to draw the crowds to their religious services ami the crowds are what all denominations are after these days, the theatre was crowded to the doors Sunday afternoon also in the evening and as usual Mrs. Fuller, who is a good sjieaker and says many excellent things in a forceful yet pleasant way interested her audience. Of course a great many people w ere there out of curiosity but it often hap ens that curious people get serious at times, and are led to turn from the error of their ways if their w ays have Urn erronious. In her address Mrs. Fuller quoted largely from the Rible and argues that those who pass from earth life are still with us in the spirit, to comfort, and guide, and bless and that communica tion may U held with' them under right conditions. At the close of each address Mrs. Fuller gave a nuinlter of manifestations and tests of more or less interest. In the afternoon many questions were handed in for her answer, in the evening some of which she hesitated about giving the answer in public. Among thoes purporting to come from the spirit world was one in which she spoke the name of Audrey a little chi !I w hom Fred Dorman recognized as his grand daughter. The medium also in another impression sjelled out the word Ray Scott, a young man, who recently passed away ami whose form the med ium could see standing beside his par ents and left a message that all was well w ith him.
